Lay down the Letter Stencils and assorted materials you want to spray thru to make your background interesting. Here I have used letter masks by Tim Holz, washers, bottle caps, sequin waste, punches punched out of paper, and a round dotty stencil.
Begin spraying thru the stencils and be careful not to move them around after spraying. I used Glimmer Mist sprays here.
I mixed another spray color using Perfect Pearls powder and a mini mister. Mask the areas you don't want the new color to reach.
I knew I wanted to add either a large hand or a figure to my page so I flipped thru my magazines looking for one. I really like the outstretched hands in this photo, so she is the winner. I used tissue from a valentines present (thanks Grace xo) to make my paper doll a dress. I added X and O stamps and have them hanging down similar to a belt. Glue sticked it together.
Play with the Layouts. I forgot to get a pic of the background after spraying but you can kind of see how it turned out below. I know I wanted to use one of the white circles as a head but wasn't sure how I was going to orient the page.
Here I used a stencil to cut dictionary pages out with words that begin with ex. Get it??? teehee. I knew that you would. I am feeling quite cautiously happy these days and positivity has infused this page. Either that or I purged all my sarcasm making Anti-Valentines!! Don't worry it will be back. teehee.
Here's a closeup of the chosen words:
Added some detail work with Stabilo pencils, chalk pencils and some embossing.
I'll post the finished page so you don't have to scroll up again!!
I hope you enjoyed the show and tell about my journal page. Come play with us next month!! I can't wait to see what Michelle has up her sleeve for the next crusdade!! xoSusan
